I used a usb stick with the installation iso image to install unbuntu on my older Dell tower. The model is Precision 380 it was being used as server, and before I got it, it didn't have an OS installed. It has a couple of Seagate Barracudas HDs in it. During the installation, I had to choose one or the other.

After the installation was successful, I restarted the computer and changed the boot priority from usb to "Serial ATA" I believe it was called. There are limited boot options. Basically, just the cd-rom, the usb, or the serial ata, so I am pretty sure I picked the right one.

I powered up my system, but the computer responded with an error message, saying that it can't find anything to boot (on the hard drive).

Is there something I'm missing here? Maybe something with the dual HDs? I don't know, maybe it has something to do with RAID? Not that familiar with that kind of stuff.
